World War I through Armistice Day

Starting with the 1912 election, what was being set up that created the atmosphere for World War I? How could one assassination trigger a world conflict? What drew the United States into a war halfway around the world? Who and what was on the Lusitania? What was the impact of the Zimmerman Telegram? Was “… he kept us out of war…” a good campaign slogan? When we got “Over there, over there…” what was the effect? The 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. Armistice Day – the effect today. The stories still resonate in our time.
